Bastian Schweinsteiger has told the reporters that he still dreams of playing for the Red Devils, and that he has ‘no personal problems’ with Jose Mourinho.
Bastian Schweinsteiger, who joined Manchester United last season, has revealed that he still wants to stay in Manchester and fight for a spot in the first team, despite being banished by Jose Mourinho to train with the reserve team.
The German captain, who will be playing his last international match this Wednesday, is adamant that he still has a lot to offer Mourinho, and wouldn’t mind a move to the United States later on in his career.
“My absolute dream would be to play for Manchester United and help them reach their goals,” Schweinsteiger spoke during the pre-match conference.
“We’ve held talks. I don’t have a problem with Jose Mourinho. We had a good exchange, he explained his standpoint to me. I know what Manchester United want. But I also know what I want.
“You will have to wait and see what happens in September, October. It’s a respectful dialogue. I will definitely not stop playing football.
“One thing is for sure: I’m not going to stop playing football. I still believe in my own ability. I could still help United if given the chance.”
The German has also been linked with a switch to the American MLS, but the player himself mentioned that the window is already shut on the American side. He did, however, refuse to play down speculation of a move in the future.
“The transfer window there is already closed. That’s why it’s not possible now.
“My dream still is to play for Manchester United. If I get a fair chance, I believe in it. I believe in my abilities. Until my suspension, it went really well last year, after that the two injuries happened. But America is naturally an option.”
